If you use Eclipse, check out this SSH plugin from eclipse plugins: Eclipse SSH Console. Download, unzip, restart Eclipse and then go to Window –> Show View –> Other –> Eclipse SSH Console. One less window I have to have open now when developing.
Also very cool and somewhat related is the Eclipse Tail tool, described as: “… tail for eclipse (like the tail unix command). You can set keywords and your logs will be colorized under 5/6 levels : no matches, debug, info, warn, error, fatal; like in log4J.”
